Yes, the UK is the only country in the whole of human history to voluntarily impose economic sanctions upon itself. Of course, the Conservatives explain this as being all the fault of the previous Labour government from checks notes twelve years ago, or the Corbin government that didn't happen, or the Starmer government that is yet to happen. It's everyone's fault apart from the Conservatives who lied to the country in order to stop billionaires having to explain their taxable income to the EU.
